On Southeastern routes, which covers Kent coastal towns such as Margate, up to four children can travel for £1 each when accompanied by at least one adult. This deal applies to all Off-Peak Single or Return tickets, as well as Advance Single tickets on any Southeastern route.
Southern, Thameslink, Great Northern and Greater Anglia trains are all allowing up to four kids with one adult to travel for £2 each on any date.
Grown-ups can head to Whitstable for £15 or Margate or Hastings for £20 with an Off-Peak Day Return ticket – available on Southeastern routes from London until 16th June 2019. Those travelling as a group could save as much as 34 per cent on off-peak tickets with the Trainline’s GroupSave.
